David Fizdale won’t guarantee any players starting spots on Knicks roster: ‘I’m going to let them clash over it’

“He’s such an unselfish kid. He wants to please everyone,” said Fizdale, who watched videos of practice with Ntilkina over breakfast Wednesday morning. “The system will help him. The film work will help him. The drill work will help. Me constantly showing him here’s an opportunity, here’s an opportunity, here’s an opportunity. You’d be surprised when we go back through the film, even he wasn’t aware of times when he just came down and just passed it. And he’s looking at an ocean of paint in front of him where he can go attack. That’s just his nature. I showed him a little thing and he goes, ‘I’m just giving up the ball for no reason.’ I’m like, “I’m just going to keep showing it to you.’ Over reps and time, habits will break. New habits will form.”
